Speaking Engagements

Darryl Patton has often been called a "Walking Encyclopedia of Plants" by those fortunate enough to have been on one of his intensive plant hikes. With a vast knowledge of the edible and medicinal qualities of the plants found in the Deep South, Darryl has an easy going way of introducing plants in an understandable way. By the time you finish one of his plant hikes, you will be amazed at the number of plants you will discover. Darryl is the author of, "Mountain Medicine, The Herbal Remedies of Tommie Bass," published by Natural Reader Press and has appeared on Alabama Public Television, the Comedy Channel and served as a consultant on an episode of Man vs. Wild. Darryl has also been featured in many newspaper and magazine articles relating to the uses of medicinal plants and is in demand nationally as a speaker on alternative medicine. He has lectured in such diverse places as Las Vegas, New York City, Washington, D.C., and Atlanta.
